Kayaking and Canoeing in Devon
Lowertown Farm B&B is only minutes away from the popular River Dart, making it a perfect base for your kayaking holiday. The River Dart is known as one of the best stretches of white water in the UK.
There is no longer an access agreement or ticketing service, however paddlers are generally welcome to use the River Dart between 1st of October and 15th of March if the river is high enough not to cause damage. There are various egress points and this can be discussed during your stay. The River Dart is up to grade four so please ensure you are safe and never paddle the river alone.
We will also dry your equipment overnight ensuring it will be dry for the following day’s paddling. As Luke is a keen paddler there are also a number of paddling magazines, maps and guidebooks available to read in our guest sitting room.
There are a range of rivers and grades locally to enjoy on your Kayaking holiday, all within a short drive including the Exe, Lyn, Teign, Taw, Avon, Tamar, Tavy, Plym, Walkham, Barle and Erme.
If you want to update your paddling skills with highly recommended instructors, then visit FluidSkills.com. There are also a number of extremely good paddling shops in Exeter, Plymouth and a small one at the Country Park if you need further equipment during your stay with us.
